    I'm hoping to be an Android newcomer very soon. My contract ends on Feb 1st and I'd like to pick up two Fascinates. One for me and one for my wife. I was crushed when Verizon ran the BOGO offer a few months ago and I couldn't upgrade.

    Do these BOGO offers seem to follow some sort of cycle or does it appear to be random?

    FWIW, they are running a BOGO offer on the Droid Incredible right now. I'd prefer the fascinate but I'm just not sure what to do. Tell Me! What should I do!!

    If price is a big deal, you can get a certified preowned Fascinate for $39.99 with a new contract on VZW's website...

    I have a family plan with 2 lines. Will they allow me to get 2 phones for $39.99 even though it's technically one contract?

    I'm not sure on that one. I would try calling customer service and see what they say. Witty it being so close to the end of your contract, they don't want you going elsewhere, and they may even go ahead and upgrade you now

    Don't be surprised to see the price of the phone drop once the Thunderbolt and such start getting released.

    Keep watching the best buy ads. I bought 2 fascinates for $50 each. Better than VZW BOGO.

    $99.00 at Best Buy Mobile. NO REBATES just $99.00 In black or white. I also believe Walmart was $59.00 and no rebates there. That takes the sting off of the price.

    Yea, Best Buy's promotion was imposable to beat. I walked out of the store with my phone in hand, without dropping a single penny. Not sure how often they do stuff like that.

    Best Buy's website has glitched a few times late at night/early morning when they're updating prices for the week and has shown many things to be lower or free. If you print the page and show them in the store, they'll honor what it said. I got a Fascinate for my girlfriend, and a friend got a DInc on a different date, for free from that. Also check Sam's Club. They've been running almost all the VZ phones for under a dollar ($0.86-0.96) since Black Friday. They don't show the Fascinate on their website anymore, but your local store may still have some.

    I'm not sure if someone already posted this but I know Wal-Mart had $50 Fascinate over the weekend, not sure how long the sell is going on...

    Edit:
    Although it could have just been for my local area...

    With $100 online discount so that's probably a $100 mail-in in store.

    Good riddance. I hated that mail-in or "Debit card" rebate crap!
